BASEBALL'S LEQUIRE NAMED CONFERENCE CAROLINAS PITCHER OF THE WEEK


High Point, NC – Pfeiffer University’s Tyler Lequire has been selected as the NCAA Division II Conference Carolinas Baseball Pitcher of the Week during week three of the 2013 - 2014 baseball season.

Tyler Lequire was dominant in Pfeiffers' 1-0 win in 14 innings over No. 12 Franklin Pierce on Saturday evening. Lequire tossed nine shutout innings on the mound and allowed only two hits while striking out nine batters. Lequire received a tough-luck no decision for the game but finished the week with 13 strikeouts in 11 innings and a 0.82 ERA.

Lequire and the Falcons are back in action on Friday as the open Conference Carolinas play with a three game road swing at Belmont Abbey.
